  13. generation of action potential across the sarcolemma

    • elasticity
  20. muscle functions
    • movement of bones or fluid
    • maintaining posture and body position
    • stabilizing joints
    • heat generation (especially skeletal)
  21. structure and organization of skeletal muscle tissue
    • muscle - surrounded by epimysium
    • fascicle - surrounded by perimysium, bundle of muscle cells
    • muscle fiber (cell) - surrounded by first the sarcolemma (the cell's plasma membrane), then the endomysium
    • myofibril or fibril - complex organelle, composed of bundles of myofilaments,
    • sarcomere - segment of a myofibril, contractile unit, composed of myofilaments made up of contractile proteins
    • myofilament or filament - 2 types - thick or thin, the thick contain myosin molecules, the thin contain actin molecules, their interaction is essentially movement
  22. sarcoplasmic reticulum
    • interconnecting tubules surrounding each myofibril
    • lots of mitochondria and glycogen for energy during contraction
    • major role is to regulate intracellular levels of ionic calcium (stores Ca and releases it on demand)
  23. terminal cisternae
    • part of the sarcoplasmic reticulum that forms a larger perpendicular cross channels at the A band I band junction
    • part of the triad with T tubules
  24. T tubules
    • sarcolemma protrudes deep into the cell creating an elongated tube
    • part of the triad with terminal cisternae of SR
    • spread signal for contraction rapidly and deep within the myofibrils
  25. sliding filament model of muscle contraction
    • during contraction, the thin filament slides past the thick ones, so that the myosin and actin overlap to a greater degree
    • when muscle fibers are stimulated by the nervous system, the myosin heads on the thick filaments latch onto myosin binding sites on actin in the thin filaments, and the sliding begins. the cross bridge attachments are formed and broken several times during a contraction, like tiny ratchets to generate tension and propel the think filaments toward the center of the sarcomere
  26. neuromuscular junction
    contains - axonal endings, synaptic cleft and the junctional folds of the sarcolemma
  27. events at neuromuscular junction
    • 1 action potential arrives at axon terminal of motor neuron
    • 2 voltage-gated Ca2+ channels open and Ca2+ enters the axon terminal
    • 3 Ca2+ entry causes some synaptic vesicles to release their contents (acetylcholine) by exocytosis
    • 4 actylcholine, a neurotransmitter, diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to receptors in the sarcolemma
    • 5 ACh binding opens ion channels that allow simultaneous passage of Na+ into the muscle fiber and K+ out of the muscle fiber. More Na+ ions enter than K+ ions leave and this produces a local change in the membrane potential (depolarization)
    • 6 ACh effects are terminated by its enzymatic breakdown in the synaptic cleft by acetylcholinesterase
  28. generation of action potential
    • 1 local depolarization and generation of an end plate potential - binding of ACh molecules to ACh receptors at the neuromuscular junction opens chemically (ligand) gated ion channels that allow Na+ and K+ to pass, making the interior slightly less negative
    • 2 generation and propagation of the action potential - spreads as a wave in all directions, opening other gated ion channels
    • 3 repolarization - repolarization in wave, Na+ channels close and voltage gated K+ channels open to allow repolarization
  29. excitation-contraction coupling
    • the sequence of events by which transmission of an action potential along the sarcolemma leads to the sliding of myofilaments
    • 1 action potential is propagated along the sarcolemma and down the T tubules
    • 2 calcium ions are released. Transmission of AP along the T tubules of the triads causes the voltage-sensitive tubule proteins to change shape. the shape change opens the Ca2+ release channels in the terminal cisternae of the sarcoplasmic reticulum, allowing massive amounts of Ca2+ to flow into the cytosol within 1 millisecond
    • 3 calcium binds to troponin and removes the blocking action of tropomyosin. when Ca2+ binds, troponin changes shape, exposing binding sites for myosin (active sites) on the thin filaments
    • 4 contraction begins. Myosin binding to actin forms cross bridges and contraction (cross bridge cycling) begins. at this point, E-C coupling is over
  30. motor unit
    • a motor unit consists of a motor neuron and all the muscle fibers it supplies
    • some supply many fibers, some few
    • some big, some small
  31. muscle twitch
    the response of a motor unit to a single action potential of its motor neuron
  32. phases of a muscle twitch
    • 1 latent period - 1st few ms, following stimulation, excitation-contraction coupling is occurring.
    • 2 period of contraction - cross bridges are active, from the onset to the peak of tension development, and the myogram tracing rises to a peak
    • 3 period of relaxation - lasting 10-100 ms, initiated by reentry of Ca2+ into the SR. muscle contracts faster than it relaxes
  33. 2 main categories of contractions
    • isotonic - muscle length changes and moves the load
    • concentric contractions - muscle shortens and does work
    • eccentric contractions - muscle generates force as it lengthens

    isometric contractions - tension may build to the muscle's peak tension-producing capacity, but the muscle neither shortens nor lengthens
  34. ATP regeneration during skeletal muscle contraction
    • 1 direct phosphorylation - CP couples with ADP to create ATP very quickly, but for a short duration
    • 2 anaerobic pathway - glucose is broken down anaerobically producing a small amount of ATP and lactic acid
    • 3 aerobic respiration - occurs in mitochondria, requires oxygen, glucose and oxygen go in to produce CO2 , water, and ATP, this is slower, but yields far more ATP
  35. muscle fatigue
    • physiological inability to contract even though the muscle still may be receiving stimuli
    • usually caused by ionic imbalance
  36. oxygen deficit
    the extra amount of oxygen that the body must take in for these resorative processes - replenish oxygen reserves, lactic acid reconverted to pyruvic acid, glycogen stores replaced, ATP and creatine phosphate reserves resynthesized
  37. force of muscle contraction
